3 - 3 - ROCKY POINT UNION FREE SCHOOL DISTRICT PREAMBLE 2006 WELLNESS POLICY Wellness Policy on Nutrition and Physical Activity Intent: The purpose of a Wellness Policy is to assist the Board of Education, Administration, and District Staff to support student achievement by creating a healthy school environment, as well as encourage students to make healthy choices. Background: In 2004 the United States Congress passed The Child Nutrition and WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) Reauthorization Act. This Federal Public Law (Pl Section 204) requires school districts with federally funded food service programs to develop and adopt a Wellness Policy that addresses the nutritional and physical activities of their students. School districts must comply with this mandate by the start of the school year beginning July 1. As districts develop their own specifically tailored Wellness Policies, they should receive input from their stakeholders, parents, students, school board members, school food service professionals, school administrators, licensed professionals, and the community. The law requires each school district to develop a Wellness Policy that includes references to nutrition and childhood obesity. It is understood that children should have access to healthy foods, the opportunity to be physically active, and the opportunity to achieve personal success so that they can strive to become responsible citizens of our communities. It is commonly accepted that overall wellness improves student attendance, which in turn can improve a child s ability to learn. Through the legislation cited above, the school community has been charged with aiding parents in being responsible for the overall health and well-being of their children. It is now predicted that the current generation of students will be the first to see a decline in their life expectancies compared to that of their parents. It has been reported that obesity rates are on the rise. It appears that physical inactivity and increased calorie intake are the predominant causes for this alarming trend. At the current time, it has been reported that heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes are responsible for two-thirds of the deaths in the United States. The major risk factors for these diseases unhealthy eating habits, physical inactivity, and obesity are often established in a child s formative school years. Whereas, children need access to an environment that encourages the practice of eating healthy foods and participating in life long physical activities in order to grow, learn and thrive;

4 - 4 - Whereas, healthy eating, adequate physical activity and better health enhances optimal student attendance and learning; Thus, the Rocky Point Union Free School District is committed to providing school environments that educate and protect children s health, well-being, and ability to learn through healthy eating and physical activity. Therefore, it is the policy of the Rocky Point Union Free School District that: The District will engage students, parents, teachers, school administrators, food service professionals, health professionals, Board of Education members, and other interested community members in developing, implementing, monitoring and reviewing the Districtwide Wellness Policy on Nutrition and Physical Activity. All students in grades PreK-12 will have opportunities, support, and encouragement to be physically active on a regular basis. Foods and beverages sold or provided by schools will meet or exceed the minimum nutrient standards established by the USDA School Food Service Program. This is to be reviewed on a regular basis by the Superintendent, Board of Education, and Wellness Committee. The School Food Service Program will provide students with access to a variety of affordable, nutritious, and appealing foods that meet the health and nutritional needs of students; and will provide clean, safe, pleasant settings and adequate time for students to eat. The School Food Service Program will be supervised by a director with the minimal qualifications of an undergraduate degree in nutrition or food-related field. All schools in the school district will participate in available Federal Meals Programs including the School Breakfast Program and National School Lunch Program. The District will continue to provide nutrition, health, and physical education that promotes healthy eating choices, encourages physical activity, and supports overall student wellness. Schools will establish linkages between health education and school meal programs. Schools will provide education to foster lifelong habits of healthful eating and physical activity. All school-based activities will be consistent with the District s Wellness Policy goals.

5 - 5 - LAWS CONCERNING FOODS OF MINIMAL NUTRITIONAL VALUE AND COMPETITIVE FOODS FEDERAL REGULATION: Part of the National School Lunch Program and Part of the School Breakfast Program regulations prohibit certain foods from being sold in food service areas during the breakfast or lunch period. FOODS OF MINIMAL NUTRITIONAL VALUE: A food that provides less than 5 percent of the US RDA for eight specified nutrients per serving, and/or per 100 calories. The nutrients specified are protein, vitamins A and C, niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, calcium, and iron. The prohibited foods specifically include soda water, water ices (excluding ices containing fruit or fruit juice), chewing gum, hard candy, jellies and gums, marshmallow candies, fondants (soft mints, candy corn), licorice, spun candy (cotton candy) and candy-coated popcorn. NEW YORK STATE LAW: This law regarding the sale of non-nutritious foods is even more stringent. Chapter 647 of the Laws of 1987 prohibits the sale of the above-mentioned items, including all candy, from the beginning of the school day until the end of the last scheduled meal period in all parts of the building, in all public schools, regardless of whether or not the school participates in the Federal Child Nutrition Programs. A public school cannot sell or serve soda or candy of any type in the student store or from a machine located anywhere in the building before the last lunch period ends. In a non-public school, the only time foods of minimal nutritional value are not allowed to be sold to students is during the lunch period; the food service area is the only location that they may not be sold. COMPETITIVE FOODS: The sale of competitive foods may be allowed in the food service area during the lunch period only if all income from the sale of such foods accrues to the benefit of the nonprofit school food service or the school or student organizations approved by the school.

6 - 6 - ROCKY POINT SCHOOL DISTRICT 2006 WELLNESS POLICY NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY I. ADMINISTRATIVE POLICY REGULATIONS AND GUIDELINES The Rocky Point School District will create a Wellness Committee to develop, monitor, and review the School Food Service Program, and any Physical Activity Policies adopted by the District.
